Fellow WWE legend Hulk Hogan and NASCAR's Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon have both racked up more than 200 wishes.

But no-one comes close to the Leader of the Cenation’s incredible 650 milestone.

The news comes with WWE currently celebrating “Cena Month” with the superstar set to RETURN to the ring before the end of the month.

The 45-year-old shocked fans as he made a comeback at Money in the Bank in July 2021 after a 16-month absence.

He then appeared on several episodes of Raw and SmackDown before losing to Universal Champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam last August.

The 16-time world champ competed in 14 matches between WWE TV tapings, live events and his appearance against the Tribal Chief.

Cena has since returned to Hollywood to continue his impressive acting career but has vowed on several occasions to make a wrestling comeback.

Now the date has finally been announced – and it will come 20 years after he made his epic WWE debut on SmackDown with his unforgettable “Ruthless Aggression” confrontation with Kurt Angle.


Cena will make his WWE return in Laredo, TX to celebrate his two decades on the June 27 edition of Monday Night Raw.

Cena looked unrecognisable in a series of throwback pictures posted online by WWE to celebrate his upcoming anniversary.

And he was was spotted at Premier League club Chelsea in May with their new owner Todd Boehly.

The wrestler was at Stamford Bridge while Dodgers boss Boehly checked in on his new investment.
